Sonoma County Sheriff Asking For Help Finding Recently Stolen Rare Car

SONOMA (CBS SF) -- Sonoma County Sheriff's officer requested the public's help Wednesday locating a rare car stolen from East Sonoma Valley a few days before.

Sheriff's deputies need assistance finding a rare 1954 Morgan Coupe, stolen last Friday from the 3700 block of Napa Road in Sonoma. According to the victim, burglars broke into the property through a neighbor's fence and accessed the trailer where the vehicle was stored. The thieves made off with the trailer that had the car's frame, engine and wheels.

The vehicle belongs to a man who's been restoring the car for over 25 years. At the time of its theft the car was in the final stages of its restoration, being readied for a paint job.

Deputies say extra pieces like the bumper, the seats and front grill were stored elsewhere during the theft.

Those with information about the theft were asked to contact Det. Nick DeGuillo at (707) 565-2185. The case number is #210226-004.
